Default What driveshaft can I use?

Hello all.

I am converting my 96 extra cab ranger from a 2.3, 5 speed to a 98 expo 5.0 with auto. What driveshaft if any can I use with this setup? Also, i have swapped the original rear axle for a 96 T-bird IRS but the diff is located in the same place as before. After putting the expo spline drive on the ranger drive shaft it is now about two inches too long. The distance from the seal to the center of the rear bearing cap is 67.5 inches. I would like to use a single piece shaft rather than the two piece I have now. Thanks for any input.

Future... 5 or 6 spd stick
Maybe one day a roots blower
